This film meant far more to me as a ten year old (when the file came out) than did Star Wars or Star Trek.
The pacing in this film is great as are the costumes, settings, model work, and what have you. Molly Ringwald is also very cute and her character Nikki is well defined as are all the other characters, protagonists and antagonists alike. The overall feeling in this film seemed to arise into something unexpected as one can glean from the opening music, which comes off as being shallow and out of place with the rest of the film, which succeeds marvelously in creating a unique vision of a fascinatingly strange world and the believable characters which populate it. I think this is largely the result of a string of happy accidents, such as when the creature effects artists were handed a memo containing the typo "fat creatures" instead of the intended bat creatures they were assigned to make. Unconventional casting also helps this film succeed. Well, with the possible exception of Michael Ironside who always seems to play SF heavies, but he is at his best here as the highly memorable Overdog McNabb!（╹◡╹）

The movie is B-class, cheaply made, with cheesy effects, but the cast is great and the story is fantastic! If you're a space opera lover, this movie is for you. It is well-written, apparently with a pinch of salt and zesty humor. If you don't mind the 'plastic effects,' it's a diamond in the rough that could be easily 'fixed' with today's CGI (the way the remastered Star Trek TOS). Hope they do so in the bluray re-release ;-)
